Ora E. “Andy” Anderson was a journalist living in Southeastern Ohio during the Great Depression. In this oral history, 93-year- old Ora recalls the environmental and social conditions that led to the establishment of the Wayne National Forest and our evolving relation- ship with the land. Along with historical photographs and emotionally evocative music by Bruce Dalzell, Ora’s first- hand account gives life to a significant chapter of American history with clarity, hope and a uniquely Appalachian perspective.

“ If I have any influence at all on the Wayne (National Forest) from time to time, it is based upon my long years of perspective and my vocally emotional approach to saving as much of that as we can. I preach this sort of thing. I’m an evangelist!”
– Ora Anderson in A Forest Returns
